Bacon makes everything better Jul 19, 2008
Animal is not a place for vegetarians. There is great love here for all things meat, particularly pork. Which meant my friends and I fit right in – we fully subscribe to the belief that “bacon makes everything better!” Our evening did not start of that smoothly (e.g., really awful valet system and bad acoustics in the room causing diners to have to shout at one another) but the good food and service more than made up for it. For apps, we had: melted petite basque with chorizo and toast (this was soooo divinely good, bubbly savory cheese spread onto toast…mmmm); foie gras on biscuit and sausage gravy (while we all agreed the biscuit overpowered the dish with its size, the seared foie gras was delectable and the gravy was ‘lick your plate clean’ good); pork ribs (good, but no spectacular). For entrees, everyone else in my party had the fried pork chop (very tender and juicy) but I had the niman flat iron steak with chanterelles, corn and sweetbreads (marbly yummy steak, nicely accompanied by the sweet corn, etc.). Desserts were a bit disappointing. We tried the strawberries with pound cake (nice but not particularly special), the blueberry crisp (again, just ok) and the chocolate with bacon (strange, but one friend really liked it). We would definitely come back to enjoy the delicious food again, but we may skip dessert next time!
